Long Beach's Rainbow Harbor is great for walking around a lively yet quaint boardwalk, buying souvenirs, and delicious cuisine. Tequila Jack's is located at the heart of this harbor, is not only a boardwalk hotspot, but also one of the best Cinco de Mayo go-tos in the city. If a plethora of tequila selections, a menu with all the Mexican staples, and plenty of bar and outdoor space for socializing sound good, then you must stop by.

Whether you are looking to sit down for an authentic Mexican dinner or for margarita/tequila variety, Tequila Jack’s is a definite a go-to. For cinco de mayo, consider having dinner here, where you'll find authentic recipes and in-house fire roasted chiles, homemade mole, and cerviches and guacamole. The place is energetic, with couples and friends who socialize loudly and leave stresses from the week at the door. After dinner, join the crowd in the Cantina, where the real fun starts. The bar area has at least a dozen flat screens to watch your games of choice. The full bar includes 125 different types of tequila, and bartenders can help you make the right selection depending on your taste. If you don’t feel like a sit down dinner, then snack on some yummy mini-tizers, including tacos and tamales, at the bar instead. On Cinco de Mayo, treat yourself to a cold and refreshing margarita in a 20oz schooner. Not a tequila fan? No problem. Have your schooner filled with another libation such as a mojito or Long Beach Peach. End the night with some yummy horchata, churros, or flan. If you are looking for a place to eat and drink some genuinely good Mexican fare and chat with friends in an upbeat environment, then Tequila Jack's is your spot.
Review By Danielle Lenglet
Tequila Jack's serves authentic Horchata, Jamaica, Tamarindo drinks, and can make over 125 different margarita types. Food includes Mexican/American fusion including ribs and mini-burgers. If you are unsure what kind of tequila to drink, ask your server
Patio tables may be hard to get, but the Shoreline Village view is worth the wait. Try the tableside guacamole and remember that you can customize margaritas with different tequilas and flavors. On Taco Tuesdays, arrive by 7pm to get a seat. Blended margaritas are delish, but more expensive then the “on the rocks” option.
